About 9:30 o'clock Saturday night, while the opera house wis filled with the elite of the town, who were being entertained by the Andrews Opera Co. in their rendition of "Mikado," the dread alarm of lire was sounded. At first it looked as if there would be a p:inlc a-i a number rushed for (he door but Milliliter V'illtoUiS who is one. o!' t.l'C eci't' !:; idel'l i !'1'! in ' " i ilh- .iiomiccd tlu.t it v;i.:i siiiiiilv u small fiame building burning in the east part of town. The crowd became quiet once more of the play went on. but the boys kept slipping away one by one and the women sidled over to ward 'the east windows to see the blaze causing the company to adjourn the play for a few minutes, until quiet was luialn restored, when they went on ith the performance. 'I he fire prov ed to be in the old rickety I nunc build ings opposite Hysinger & Eosenthal.s, known as the Freemanbuildiugs. The night was a bad one to fight fire, but the boys got the hose coupled onto the hydrants and soon commenced playing on the flames with'two strong streams of water, but not nntil the. fire had gained such headway as to make it impossible to extinguish it till a num ber of these old rookeries were de stroyed. The buildings burned were as follows: J. II. HulTord's meat mark et partly burned; W. II. Purdy's shoe shop almost totaly destroyed; J. A. Adkinson's restaurant and the build ing in which Goyett formerly had his second hand store was completely ' de stroyed. Considerable of the contents of each of these buildings were saved. It is difficult to figure the damage. The buildings were old rookeries and it i.i a blessing that they are gone. The stocks of goods in the buildings were light and mostly covered by In surance. It was one of those fires that progressive citizens like to see. No one seems to know how or where the fire originated. G. A. R. Encampment.
